With the news this afternoon that Rafa Benitez is already taking his first training session at Benton after he canceled the players’ day off – the former Liverpool coach is straight down to business as he tries to save Newcastle United from relegation – which will not be an easy task.
For those people getting home from work here are the pictures we’ve been able to pull together on Rafa’s sensational arrival at Newcastle.
We don’t use the word sensational often – but this is a sensational appointment by Newcastle United.
We assume he traveled in last night and his coaching team is already in place and includes Ian Cathro and goalkeeping coach Simon Smith from the former team.
Rafa doesn’t mess around and that will very quickly get through to the Newcastle players who need to shape up rather quickly .
No words are needed with these photos of Rafa.
